Grafters would dodge real Issues. Just xiw choice spirits of the local grafting "contingent are trying to dodge. Tie "piece" writers of a moribund Publication that has aa a mill atone around Its neck bird-brained Individ-vsls who think ownership of a share ot' stock Qualifies and authorizes Its ,n..r to write "kenrds" to boost tiim. aelf or his friends, or to "get e Jin, .nmnimilv are srettlnx busy and like the cuttle-fish are endeavoring, to becloud the situation as to local politics and to aet up a gigantic straw nan and wallop him unmercifully. There's going to be no trouble In this county or district relative to the seoatorshlp. Individuals who con-elder themselves of more Importance than their party are not numerous, but If -they should become obstreperous they will be disciplined and effectively so. The real and the main Issue before the voters of this county is the extermination of graft in the conduct of public affairs. People of Richland county are not unmindful ot the fact that practically nothing has been done toward getting after the king bees ot the grafting contingent the fellows who compromised big tax suit cases for one-tenth or less of the amount claimed and then held out on the county in Illegal fees the lion's share of the "compromised" amounts accepted. This "piece" and the "keerd'.' writers -"who are so damaging to the Interests of the publication they afflict with tjieir lame and labored efforts might aa well sign themselves "Gratters" for they( deceive nobody. Tbey can't get' away from the anti- graft sentiment that Is growing In this ormt They may nose as leaders In their party and may even attain "hon ors" dependent upon the manipulation and chicanery attendant upon the con niving of a aelect few at a comparative ly .mail gathering A professional of floe-seekers and polltlciansbut thero Is to be reckoned with a greater pow r that great body of thinking and Jkoneat voters of all parties who are combining against graft, i o Almost any old issue Is welcome to too fellows who seem to have regained a grip on the local Democracy except the Issue of anti-graft. They shy at that like a country-bred horse at first sight of a trolley car. But It is no .wonder.:; People are asking about a good many of the 'graft-gorged Individuals hereabouts, "where did they let itr ' ; " ; . " THE NEW WORD, " GRAFT. -. The thing which the term "graft" describes .has existed or prevalled-for a long time. The term Itself is of more recent origin. r. ... . Of the term and the conditions that make it so well understood although the lexicographers do not 'define ihe word in the sense in which ltjasq well known, the Kansas City Star says: If a person learning English were to turn to a recent dictionary to learn the meaning of the :ommon word "graft," he would fail to be enlightened. From the Century dictionary of 1899, the International of 1901 and the Standard of 1903 he would gather that a "graft" was a snoot of a tree or a piece of skin to be surgically transported. A graner, ne wouiq oe HTsynaree.'-' a person who grafted the shocks! So rapidly has this particular bit of language developed in the last few years that a word which was consider ed mere slang at the time of the pub lication of the latest dictionaries is now in good usage. Tou will find It employed without quotation marks In some of tho most conservative and reputable! publications. A recent book . put forth by one of (be most eminent of publishing houses contains a chap- ter heading. "The Reign of Graft," and uses .the word throughout, as a well uuderatood and proper term which, Indeed,-it Is. The development of the use of the term la a remarkable thing when you slop to think about it. One cannot avoid speculating whether the aiWItion of tills new word to the language Is due to the suddenly1 rapid gTowth of the phenomenon which It names, or whether It Is merely the result of a growing consciousness of the existence of a class of actions which had been long present but which until recently had almost escaped attention. ;-.-r . - - -. ? -. .

For instance, among this class are those who think It Is absolutely necessary for them to travel between Chlcagd and New York in two or three hours less time than other people take for the same trip. It really wouldn't turn the world upside down or cause any displacement of the planetary system If a good many of the men scurrying back and forth between the two cities never visited i either of them. ; o If Ohio Democracy should conclude to Incorporate an 'anti-graft" resolution In the platform to be adopted at the state convention next week It is not improbable that quite a number of the IUchlaftd county, delegates will &kVltM.A"Psouaf mMioifrmMMk out of the convention. o 1 Richland county Democrats are not as easily hoodwinked by the grafters' as the latter think they are. If the grafters really think they have any cinch on the confidence of the people let some of them be candidates before the people for office. o- . Some of the Democrats In this local ity are imagining that they are great ly worried about the outcome of the senatorial convention held by the Re publicans of the district at Wellington a tew days ago. "What's it to 'em? waves of popular sentiment, but. their 'keerds" won't do it. The people are on." Crown Princess Cecelia can do housework as skillfully as the most tiustworthy servant. Most German girls can, because their parents bring them -up right; The children of weal thy German parents and even of the royal families' are taught to work and to qualify themselves to earn a living If it is necessary for them to do so. rt is said that the average man spends $1.20 a week for liquor. If there were added to this amount the bum the average woniun spends for Ice cream soda the aggregate average for drinks would probably be less. Senator Scott Is entirely wrong In supposing that the president wants to build the Panama canal with foreign supplies.

A few days ago there floated onto the golden sands of Old Orchard, Maine, a serpent -whose sinuous body stretched . in a long wave of sand more than forty-five feet Over 2,000 people flocked to the shore to convince themselves that the long mystical, half-legendary leviathan. had proved a reality.

An American resldent.ln Manila recently made a trip to the Island of Cebu. in the Philippines, and has sent to friends here an interesting account .of ..Jhe meeting with an" American missionary on that island and of the influence he exercises over the natives. The missionary spoken of is the' Rev', Frederick" ! Jansen, who has" been stationed in Cebu by the Presbyterian Board of Foreign missions,- After telling of the influence, social and moral, which Mr. and Mrs. Jansen exercise in the city, the Manila resident says: "While I was in Cebu the. constabulary (which is the native mllltla officered by Americans) waa obliged to reckon with' him. A pueblo way up In the mountains refused to Come Into the camp and be vaccinated, until they received orders from their pastor, El Senor Reverando Frederlco, as he is called. So, upon learning thla from the officers, Mr. Jansen tramped away up over the mountains, had his people brought Into Camp Walker and told them they should be vaccinated and obey all the laws. He then arranged for a . separate camp for the "protestantes" and they are to have a pueblo of their own until the reconcen uaao policy is no longer necessary, This is- inr the heartJ of th Pulajane country, where' the ladrones are out' in large companies' and yet escaping cap turn . ' Nevertheless, the constabulary officers, told 'Mr. Jansen that he was perfectly safe in the mountains, as the Pulajanes seemed all to be bis friends. At any rate, they seem t ohave it un detstood among them that he is not to be harmed, and as for the real p rotes tantes in the far-off pueblos, they were perfectly overjoyed to find that their pastor had come out to stand between them and the Pulajanes on the one hand, and an undue harshness ot the constaublary on the other."

One of the most beautiful things that could be said of woman was said of one who had neither beauty, wealth nor education; It was this: "She was pleasant to live with."

TAKE THE WHOLE MAN TO THE TASK. Only fresh, spontaneous work really counts. If you have to drive yourself to your task, if you have to drag yourself to your work every morning because of exhausted vitality. If you feel fagged or worn out, if there Is no elasticity In your step or movements, your work will partake of your weakness. Make it a rule to go to your work every morning fresh and vigorous. You cannot afford to take hold of the task upon which your life's success rests with the tips of your fingers. You cannot afford to bring only a fraction of yourself to your work. You want to go to it a whole man, fresh; strong and vigorous, so that it will . be . spontaneous, not forced; buoyant, not heavy. You want to go to your work with creative energy, and originality-possessed of a strong, powerful indi viduality. If you ko to it with jaded faculties and a sense of lassitude, after a night's dissipation or loss ot sleep, it will Inevitably suffer. Everything you do will bear the impress of weakness, and there is no success or satisfaction in weakness. This Is Just where a great many people fall In not bringing all of them selves to their task. The man who goes to his task with debilitated energy and low vitality, with all of his standards down and his ideals lagging, with a wavering mind, and uncertain step, will never produce anything worth while.
